UNDP is implementing the project “Reduction and elimination of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and other chemical releases through implementation of environmentally sound management of E-Waste, healthcare waste and priority Unintentional POPs release sources associated with general waste management activities” in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and other stakeholders, The project aims to avoid the releases of Unintentional POPs, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and CO2, contributing at the same time to the development of the waste circular economy elements based on the 3R (Reduce, Re-use, Recycle) approach principles. The project is designed with the three (3) components:

Project Component 1: Development of an environmentally sound management (ESM) system for E-waste, which has the objective to improve and enforce the E-waste regulation in the country, and to develop capacity for the collection and disposal of POPs Contaminated E-waste products and end-of-life articles;
